If you use Mozilla Firefox as your Web browser, you probably already know about all the cool add-ons and extensions available. I just found one by accident that’s really cool—FoxClocks. It will add to your status bar the current time in any cities you choose, and you can even have the color change during certain hours. I set mine up to include Buenos Aires, US Eastern, and US Pacific. The latter two will show in green between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., so I know at a glance whether my clients are (in theory) at work (not to mention whether my friends are likely to be on instant messenger, etc.). Brilliant! Check it out if you have friends/family in different time zones anywhere in the world (ahem, I think you’ll know at least one in the near future). Has anyone else come across cool add-ons?

So, this is my new blog home. I promise to stop changing blogs so frequently—it finally dawned on me that there's no need for that. Just because my physical location is often in flux doesn't mean my online one must follow suit. (Although I do heartily support having travelblogs with my friends at bootsnall.com, as I've done in the past.) Nomadchronicles.com has also been redesigned and pared down significantly—a nomad's gotta be streamlined! On the right side of this page you'll find links to some other useful and entertaining pages in addition to my home page—my photos, my former travelblogs, my freelance site at nomadeditorial.com (still due for an upgrade of its own), and a bunch of other sites I frequent. I've got friends doing all sorts of great things, and their dispatches offer plenty of interesting reading. I'll also continue to share what I've been reading and how the list of 101 Things in 1001 Days is going, but just as a part of this blog—they'll have their own categories, accessible from the right-hand column. Unfortunately, the links within entries are sort of hard to see—they're light grey instead of white like the rest of the text (or darker grey than the rest of the text in older entries). If you move your mouse over them they turn white, making it a little easier to find them. Basically, if I refer to another website, there's a good chance there's a link to it, so give it a shot. Sorry there's nothing I can do to fix this—wordpress won't allow me to edit the design at all—the only flaw I've found in their services thus far. Also, if you want to read an older entry in the larger, white font, just click on the entry's title. Anyway, welcome, and enjoy! I'm glad you're along for the ride.
